This home was a family home in a great location and was in need of updates to bring it back to a place where family can gather and be comfortable in. New windows, insulation, plumbing, electrical, flooring, custom cabinets, and custom trim work throughout the home has brought this home back to an amazing place to spend family time in.
We were contacted by this client because another builder was having difficulties coming up with a design that this client liked and thought matched the existing house the way they had hoped it might. After our first meeting we had a good idea on what needed to happen so this house could be transformed to its new style. After we finalized the design, we discussed the remainder of the home and the decision was made to renovate the entire home inside and out. On the exterior we installed Marvin windows throughout, Custom color L.P. Smart-side, new roof, a new cedar deck off the back of the new addition, new Simpson Fir front door with cedar and stone columns on the front porch. We moved a few walls, redid the the existing fireplace, and added a 300 Sq. Ft. addition off the back of the home for a new kitchen. The kitchen consisted of custom alder cabinets and granite tops and a glass tile back splash. The flooring consisted of #3 Maple hardwood floors throughout the first floor with some slate, ceramic tile in bathrooms, and new carpet in the bedrooms. A stunning new master bath was added upstairs along with a custom staircase and railing. This complete new face lift has brought this home to one be of the nicest our company has had the pleasure of working on, and has made this client extremely proud to call the renovation their "new home". When this project was completed, we have gained not only a satisfied new client, but new friends too.
This whole house remodel is unique because it has two 2-story additions off the back. One had the master bedroom above with garage beneath, and the other one had a great room above and game room beneath. All this was accomplished with a deck between the two additions.
With all-new windows, doors, roof, soffit, fascia and new cedar siding, this home is completely new outside, with striking stone accents helping to set off the country-style prairie theme. To help freshen up the front, we also put a covered barrel vault front porch on for curb appeal.
Inside we started with some new walls, all new doors and trim. For woodwork we chose 3-panel fir doors, 6” fir base and 4” fir casing. With a stunning maple floor to pull it all together, the homeowners’ and R. Tews design ideas became a fantastic reality.
In the kitchen, birch cabinets with a brown stain in a mission door style and granite counter tops helped finalize the style goals. With the final paint coat, it made this impressive home a true gem and one of our best overall exciting projects to complete.
This home was 80% remodel project. The challenge was to remove the majority of the downstairs walls. This was achieved using steel beams. We then covered them with some fabulous box beams for a truly unique ceiling finish. Our other priority was a seamless addition for the kitchen. By coming off the back of the garage and then cutting a hole in the side wall of the house for entry made a remarkable, beautiful addition, and it looked like it had always been that way.
Our last goal was to bring the lake inside by using some beautiful wide windows and doors. We achieved a 180-degree view of the lake. The perfect finish to a very fun and unique project.
Due to major water damage on this lake home, we had to completely remove the interior, including the floor system. The integrity of the structure was addressed and rebuilt. Because the challenges of building or renovating on waterfront property are always an issue, we had to leave the existing structure standing.
With a rustic cabin theme in mind, the transformation began. We used cabin grade oak hardwood floor, knotty pine 6 panel doors, and rustic pine window trim and baseboard. The loft was accented with a knotty pine log rail system, which overlooked the cedar wrapped ceiling beams and gave a great view of the lake.
A total transformation was born.
This home started as a standard ranch home with a walkout basement. The idea was to completely change the homes’ appearance to a prairie mission style. With this in mind, we pulled a 3-car garage forward and converted the existing garage to a kitchen and dining room, leaving the exposed brick chimney for character. We built a new covered front entry with stone columns and barrel-vaulted ceiling with bead board. Inside we chose fir doors and trim work to achieve the mission style we were after. With 3 panel doors, 6” base, 4” casing and black accent stool on top of the doorjambs, that goal was achieved. We finished the look with light Birdseye maple flooring with accents and maple mission cabinets for a complete transformation.
This whole house remodel was very unique because the client had built it new many years earlier and had learned it was just to small, and very inefficient to heat and cool. The biggest challenge was to double the homes size and do it in a way that looked like it was built that way from the very start. After the clients initial meeting we took the challenge of drawing and laying out plans with them from the top to bottom. We added on three additions, expanding up and out! A new heating and cooling system was installed and new electrical work and fixtures throughout. We also gave the home a complete exterior remodel that included L.P. Smart Side , new Marvin windows, new roof and some features with real curb appeal! Inside the home it was completely reconstructed from top to bottom. Drywall , new paint colors, carpet, slate, hardwood flooring, and a awesome new kitchen with custom cabinets with a hidden office nook! The remodeled home finished with all of the custom woodwork and interior finishes is sure to be enjoyed for a lifetime of the wonderful clients!
